IMG_1414Bob Dotson has an unusual beat.  For 40 years he has looked behind the media mirror that reflects the powerful and popular to find tales of people who are practically invisible, the stories about us.

Bob Dotson has been in more motel rooms than the Gideon Bible, crisscrossing this country, four million miles, practically non-stop, for forty years, searching for people who change our lives, but don’t take time to Twitter and tell us about it.

Dotson’s long running series, „The American Story with Bob Dotson,“ is a regular feature on “Today,” and his third book „American Story, a Lifetime Search for Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things“ became a New York Times Best Seller. His literary works have won the Christopher Award for outstanding non-fiction in 2014 and the George Washington Honor Medal for excellence. He has also received more than 100 awards for his work in broadcast journalism, including eight National Emmys and eleven nominations. The Radio Television Digital News Association has honored Dotson with a record five Edward R. Murrow Awards – for „Best Network News Writing” and more than a dozen other awards for his reporting. The Society of Professional Journalists cited him three times for “Best Network Television News Series.” Dotson’s work has won top journalism awards from the National Press Photographers, DuPont-Columbia and Robert F. Kennedy And William Allen White Foundations.

His stories have taken him to every state, many times, and around the world. Dotson is an internationally acclaimed documentary producer. His film, El Capitan’s Courageous Climbers (NBC Productions,) was the winner of seven International Film and Video Festivals and was awarded documentary’s highest honor, the CINE Grand Prize.
